    I have been working at Valley Health System (New Jersey) part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    CEUs on a calendar, no trouble off if you know 6-8 weeks in advance when you need it, medical benefits for full or part time, thorough orientation and open-door policy with management

    Cons

    call outs work against periodic reviews no matter what the reason is, some staff not as welcoming during orientation, no promotions, lower pay than the rest of bergen county for staff, medical insurance only applicable for providers approved so check benefits before making appointments

    Advice to Management

    none. staff meetings immediately address issues and are open to suggestions and resolutions to problems

    I have been working at Valley Health System (New Jersey) full-time

    Pros

    Cutting edge procedures and treatments
    Compensation recently made more competitive with other Area NJ hospitals
    Tuition benefits
    Decent employee health plan

    Cons

    Bad staffing ratios
    Patient care varies from excellent to awful depending on managing physicians
    Poor communication between physician/physician and physician/nurse
    Constant turnover in ER/certain inpatient units means young inexperienced RNs are managing high acuity, complex patients without experienced RNs to consult
    Management always looking to save money at the expense of safe patient ratios & employee satisfaction
    Patients &Families are allowed to run amok/dictate care even when they are inappropriate/threatening with staff
    Management pays lip service to shared governance & a culture of respect (mainly so they can advertise all the corresponding awards) but ultimately does whatever they want
    Physicians can give criminally negligent care and retain privileges

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead weight physicians who don't provide quality care to patients
    Safe staffing
    A real voice for bedside RNs - not BS staff meetings where no real concerns are actually addressed

    Pros

    There were no pros at this employer

    Cons

    Company is very poor in training their employees, very unprofessional management, staff that stabs people in the back, and upper management is not concerned with the job satisfaction of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people to management positions that not only have the knowledge to perform the job but also the social and people skills to motivate and teach those under them.

    Incredible co-workers and management, opinion is valued, lot of growth potential, positive environment, exciting part of the company to be in as it grows.Great work/life balance and trust in the work of employees. You feel heard and appreciated and valued in this department.

    Cons

    The health system's culture hasn't caught up to the strategies of this arm of the health system and will be necessary for full success. Physicians aren't mandated to participate in goals. Pay is on low side for value.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on hospital executive and physician executive engagement in goals and objectives, reform case management/ur/care coordination structure to help accomplish this.
